I must say, I've had a wonderful time reading and responding to such incredible poetry this weekend. I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for their wonderful friendship and beautiful poetry. I've enjoyed each and every post! You're an amazingly talented group of poets, and I'm so pleased to have discovered this wonderful haven!

The Writings of My Heart
With thoughts upon my mind, I try
To utter words a'new,
Attempts to speak unwritten notions,
Yet I gather few.
Articulation falters swiftly,
Stalled amongst the tide,
A cataclysmic undertaking,
Once again denied.
How could it be, you render speechless
All I wish declared,
Expression flows in adoration,
Yet I'm unprepared.
Disclosed within the depths I seek
The writings of my heart,
I wish to raise the words to surface,
Where they can depart.
'Neath hidden terms of adulation,
Thoughts I'm dreaming of,
Churn quietly below the shallows,
Rapt in warmth of love.
And yet, expression lingers softly,
Halts ascending climb,
Withheld from verbalized display,
To hover over time.
No exclamation can declare
Emotions of my soul,
For swiftly, words escape my meaning,
Lost, beyond control.
And so until expression rises
From these lips exhaled,
I urge you, look into these eyes
Where all will be unveiled.
Through portals of my soul you'll find
In rich, unfettered view,
These words I try in vain to speak …
Are waiting here for "you".
